Saying Timmy is a ‘mikvah lady’, however, is something of an understatement. Timmy is also Australia's only Jewish female prison chaplain and has helped and changed the lives of so many people through what has been and continues to be an inspirational personal journey.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear her extraordinary story.
